Could not able to understand. Can you explain it more ? I also read the article too.

For example: Let's say a live cricket match is going on and ad comes after completion of the over. Then, I will see different ad and you will see different ad based on mine and your's interest (multiple beams). Then, as the next over resumes (merge into one beam), all audience will be getting same match feed. Hope you understood now.
